An Active Livery Investing in Young People

Visit to Donington Park

Coachmakers and their guests can enjoy a rare and fascinating chance to get behind the scenes at an international motorsport venue, experience an active pitlane on a track day, visit the race control, and be taken on an extended track tour with expert guidance.

After lunch, we visit the world headquarters of Formula E, the all-new electric racing series, and see the Donington Grand Prix Collection, with its world-renowned display of Formula One cars of many eras, including present day examples from Williams, Red Bull, Force India and McLaren.

Donington’s Museum is also home to the unique machinery of the Wheatcroft Military Collection, with its display of rare World War Two fighting vehicles, immaculately restored to working order.

Your tour will be led by Liveryman Christopher Tate, who is Managing Director of Donington Park.
